YOUR SEXUAL HEALTH IS IMPORTANT


You may be worried about pregnancy, but getting a sexually transmitted disease (STD) or sexually transmitted infection
(STI) is something that can happen any time you have sex. You may have an STD and not even know it because not
everyone exhibits symptoms.

What do I need to know about STDs?

  • More than a dozen STDs exist
  • STDs can be treated, but some can’t be cured
  • There are 19 million new infections each year (Over half are diagnosed in people between the ages of 15 and 24)

How could I get one?

  • STDs are passed between people during any type of sexual activity such as vaginal, oral, or anal sex, outercourse, or
    mutual masturbation.  They’re passed through bodily fluids and sometimes skin-to-skin contact.
